Esprit De Pavie 2009 (750ML)
Critic Scores, Reviews & Descriptions
Pavie recently joined Cheval Blanc and Ausone at the apex of St. Emilion producers. 2009 Pavie received the magical 100 Robert Parker.
Pavie is widely acclaimed as one of Bordeauxs greatest terroirs, of largely limestone and clay soils. Brilliantly situated with a sunny, southern exposure and exceptional drainage, Pavie potentially rivals nearby Ausone, the oldest and possibly the most famous estate in Bordeaux. Pavies other nearby neighbors include, Pavie-Macquin and Troplong-Mondot to the north, Larcis-Ducasse to the southeast and La Gaffeli¬re and Saint-Georges C«te Pavie to the west. Robert Parker
Esprit de Pavie is born from the passion of Gerard Perse, since being a proprietary of the famous Chateau Pavie, creator of wine from the most beautiful hillsides of Bordeaux. Their orientation on the south facing hills, the grapes in their fullest maturity, produce a round, balanced wine. Reflecting the traditional Bordeaux style, this wine is composed of 65% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc, and 15% Cabernet Sauvignon. _Winemaker
